The Tear CollectorTitle: The Tear Collector

Rating: 4/10

Summary: (Taken from Amazon)

Fans of urban fantasy should prepare for a new kind of vampire–one that feeds off of tears instead of blood. Descended from an ancient line of creatures that gain their energy from human tears, Cassandra Gray depends on human sorrow to live. Only Cass has grown tired of living this life and wants to live like a human, especially now that she’s met someone worth fighting for.

My Thoughts:

This book is ick. The idea of it is so cool and I was expecting great things out of a it. Unfortunately, it did not deliver. There was a lot of pages where nothing happened and nothing was ever fully developed. I found myself going “Wait? What?” so many times. The characters themselves were just annoying.

The only positive thing I can say about this book was the idea of a vampire feeding on tears was interesting.

I’m glad I read your review before buying this. Also I love the quote “this book is ick.” Classic!!

Agree completely except I didn’t make it past page 10. 😦

Thank you for the honest review. I was considering buying this, but I guess not anytime soon.

I totally disagree. I read this book in 2 days, and loved it. i could relate to most of the characters in some way or another. the idea was amazing and very inventive. i thought it was amazing, and one of his best books.
